The Strongbow Yard

Project Logistics

The Strongbow Yard is a well-known feature at a number of major festivals in the UK; incorporating a bar with a balcony, a large DJ set-up and, most impressively, a ten-metre tall structure of an archer. The size of the structure means it can be seen from some distance, making it an ideal meeting point for many festival-goers.

For 2019, the archer was once again expected to make an appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival, Kendal Calling, and Victorious Festival in Portsmouth. However, two weeks before The Yard was due to be collected from storage, our client discovered that the usual haulier could no longer cover the project.

With so little time remaining to find another partner for this complex, time-critical project, our client was faced with the reality that ‘Archie’ may not make any appearances at all. Recognising the only option was to approach other logistics providers, the client got in touch via our website. With a strong “anything is possible” ethos among our projects team, we jumped at the chance to assist.

“From start to finish, this was a very rewarding project to be involved in, albeit one that presented its fair share of challenges.”
